Her retort did make a bit of sense, but he was too angry to realize, or admit that. Vaughn simply rolled his eyes at her speech. “Yer impossible. Not to mention over-dramatic.” The man turned his face away, shaking is head as he thought over how to proceed.
Did she mention feeding the dolphins? Vaughn perked up slightly, unable to hide the slight surprise in his eyes. A girl as annoying as this, actually taking the time to feed the dolphins. The trader quickly returned to his usual frown, hoping he’d never see the blonde-haired bombshell that was dropped on him ever again. “Yeah yeah, of course you were - now, I got one question for ya before I forget you ever existed. Where did ya say this dolphin was?”
It was a simple enough question, he’d finish his work for the day and go check out what this lady’s fuss was all about. But, quickly remembering the impossible personality of the stranger, Vaughn quickly added. “Never mind, forget I asked, I can find it myself.”
Snorting, she ran her hand through her hair. She wasn’t going to admit anything or deny it. He deserved no response. Heck, he didn’t even deserve to be here. If only Mayor Thomas would kick him out now. Not via the boat, either; make him walk out. That would be the perfect plan.
Gwen froze when he spoke. Why did he care about the dolphin? What did he want? She turned her head to look at him. There was no way she was going to say anything to him about her dolphin friend. What if he wanted to harm him? Even more so if he wanted to get back at her.
Hearing him say that he would find him himself made the hair on the back of her neck stand up. “We’ll see about that…” she muttered, practically storming off to the Inn. Now she needed to come up with a plan.
*stares at her* Products? Like… what kind
Mikhail followed her, keeping at pace. “Ah, it’s fine. But since the boat already left I have to wait until tomorrow for the next trip before heading to where ever the place you’re recommending me to is.” He hoped it wouldn’t be too far since travel fees were just getting higher and higher each year.
He instinctively touched the back of his neck. “Yeah, I’d want a dog that wouldn’t be hard to train since I can’t spend all my time trying to make it obedient.”
She frowned. Did that mean he had to stay here for the night? Where exactly would he stay? He could always go to see Ronald and stay with him. That was where every traveler usually went. Other than that, Gwen wouldn’t know where he would go. “Well, it’s in Konohana. It’s a bit far from here but not from other places.”
Walking into the next area, she looked around as she walked towards the lone building to the left. Everything seemed quiet. Bob must still be asleep. She opened the door and motioned for him to come. “Kana has some good dogs. They’re really sweet.”
My horses do have fat bootys.
I like tall guys and a good head of hair on a guy or girl. Short girls are cute, though.
I like my eyes. They aren’t very common and some people like them.
…Really?…[Meryl tugged on her dress, looking at the horse and inched closer to Napoleon rubbing his mane]…Can you lift me?…
[She looked at the horse which seemed to be content with her touching him and tried to build up enough courage to ride him]…You promise he wont bite me?..
*Carefully, Napoleon nudged the girls arm, as if beckoning her to get on* I promise he won’t~. *Reaches down and lifts Meryl up but doesn’t put her on his back* Once I put you on him, there’s barely any going back. I’ll be here to get you down, though.*She grinned*
"Well I ain’t about to ‘pologize for takin’ the quickest route to get done what I gotta do." Vaughn replied, straightening his posture as he looked down on the blonde. "If you weren’t here, we wouldn’t be havin’ this problem, and my life would be a heck of a lot easier."
"Is that a threat?" The silver-haired man inquired, raising a brow while the unimpressed look remained on his face. "I ain’t got any look goin’ on. I’m just tryna do my job lady. And you’re makin’ it a whole lot harder than it’s gotta be, and you’re wastin’ both of our time." He replied, shaking his head as he let out an agitated sigh. "Get outta my way, and we can pretend we never met, I’d sure as hell enjoy that reality."
She sneered at him. Never in her life had she met such a person. Even growing up the city she hadn’t met someone like this man. “So sorry if going around me would have added two seconds to your ‘busy schedule’. I’ll be sure to call my mother and tell her that she messed up raising me.” Nodding her head, she frowned. “I’ll tell her that instead of feeding dolphins, I’ll be bowing out of every mans way. Yes, that sounds about right.”
Gwen grinned. “Not at all. I was simply giving you a warm Flowerbud Village welcome~,” she said sarcastically. Opening her mouth quickly, she closed it just as fast. Not only did she have no retort for his comment, she knew that if she continued, she would be running late. If not for the barn, then for the Inn. The lunch rush would be arriving soon and she knew she would be kept busy for the next couple of hours. Her uncle would forgive her for that, but customers surely won’t.
Scoffing, she turned on her heel and walked down the pier. “Consider yourself lucky then, cowboy. With luck, our paths will never cross again.”
Jack knew better than to question Gwen, if it came to horses, so he did as she asked. “What’s up?” he asked her. Mega seemed to appreciate Gwen’s touch, which Jack just took as Gwen being a horse-whisperer.
